South Africa Elections: Students & Politics

28. mai, kl. 18:00-19:30
SAIH Bislet og Fellesrådet for Afrika
Skatten, Tøyen
Facebook event

The results from the general election held on the 8th of May in South Africa is clear. The ruling African National Congress is once again reelected, but they are weakened and the opposition is strengthened. The people are demanding a change. Corruption scandals and an unstable economy are key issues to address. How will ANC with president Cyril Ramaphosa utilize opportunities for the people in one of the most unequal countries in the world?

Since 2015 the #feesmustfall student movement in South Africa has been in the frontier of demanding action from politicians, demonstrating for a public university that is free and accessible for everyone regardless of their economic ability to pay fees. The running parties for the general election all made an attempt to target their election campaigns towards the youth, seeking to collect their votes. How has this played out? What is the future for the people, the youth and students in South Africa?

In the panel;

Jan Speed - journalist and web editor for Bistandsaktuelt. Speed is from South Africa

Marianne Millstein - researcher at OsloMet, has done extensive research on and in South Africa

Manqoba Nxumalo, student at NMBU, President of the Ubuntu African Students Association, from Swaziland but has studied for years in South Africa

The moderator for the event will be Andreas Buhler, historian and former lecturer at University of Cape Town
